LUBBOCK – Work on a $721,754 Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) project to install traffic cameras on east and north Loop 289 is scheduled to begin next week. The project is part of TxDOT’s overall Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) and is expected to assist in providing real-time information to drivers, said Jeremy Dearing, P.E., Lubbock District Director of Transportation Operations.

“The DMS system allows TxDOT to communicate important road conditions and situations to the driving public throughout the area,” Dearing said. “The cameras will play a vital role in providing information to the Traffic Management Center operated by the city of Lubbock, especially during times of inclement weather or traffic incidents.”

Project contractor Florida Traffic Control Devices, Inc., of Altamonte Springs, FL, is scheduled to begin work Monday, March 25, to place new cameras at the major intersection along east and north Loop 289.

Drivers should anticipate various daily lane and ramp closures during construction. Work is scheduled to be completed in late-July and will take place weather permitting.
